Dubious or Reliable?

By | September 11, 2006

Interesting story today on NPR’s Morning Edition about Wikipedia.

 “Wikipedia is the ever-evolving work of hundreds-of-thousands of volunteer writers and editors who range from high school students to academic scholars. This leaves the online encyclopedia open to criticism and ridicule. That doesn’t seem to stop people from using the site as a source for knowledge.”

  • Listen to the report
  • After hearing the NPR story, the basic idea of Wikipedia, already mentioned by Ed in his blog, makes me think that:

    If society generally distrusts “modeling done by a single mind,” than do people also distrust modeling done by too many minds?
